Not a Great Day

“You have a great day” This is how all Triple A service people end their calls and it is a mistake. It is so unlikely that anyone they are speaking to will.

Take my own case: the car refused to start again this morning and however hard I belabored the end of the key, I just couldn’t get it to turn enough to spark the engine. I have now called a Triple A tow truck which will take me to a Mazda dealer which will not be open today. I will then have to hire a car, or spend a fortune on cabs. A great day does not seem to be on the cards.
